North Memorial Announces Expansion in New Location


Minneapolis (Thursday, November 18th, 2021) With medical construction picking back up in the Twin Cities, North Memorial Health recently broke ground on an undeveloped lot located on the southwest corner lot of Lexington Ave and 109th Street in Blaine. The new building will include North Memorial Health primary care clinics, specialty care clinics and hospice.

This approximately 50,000 square foot, state-of-the-art facility will provide expanded primary, specialty and urgent care services to the northern suburban communities and will also house some administrative and support services. Once completed, this clinic will be replacing North Memorial Health’s nearby clinics, currently housed in a multi-tenant medical office on Ulysses Street NE..

“This new clinic will help us meet the growing need for primary, specialty and urgent care services for customers in the Blaine community,” said J. Kevin Croston, MD, CEO of North Memorial Health. “We are excited to be creating a new, state-of the art space that will provide an even better customer experience and a wonderful environment for our team members.”

A project that has been in the works for a while, the location was chosen by North Memorial Health’s leadership team with help from Forte Real Estate (formerly The Excelsior Group), a local advisory firm. The project team includes Gardner Builders as the General Contractor and HGA Architects & Engineers as the base building architect. MSP Commercial is the developer of the project and will also be managing it after completion.

Construction will continue throughout the next three seasons, with a scheduled opening in fall, 2022.
